Thank you very much Brian! Most of these ones were taken near my home in Mount Dora, FL. All of these last ones were on Lake Dora... Lots of Alligators too! Mating season and they are going crazy! They're all over the place.. Saw a Great Blue Heron standing on top of one a couple days ago, pounding the gator's head with his beak!! Sadly, I was on a quick run to pick the kids up from school and didn't have any gear with me... I never think of pulling out my iPhone for a quick photo, that would have worked I suppose...Yellow Rumped Warbler~Fabulous shots Ken, all of them.
Where were they taken? There's certainly a great diversity there, must be a lot of food available.
Ken,Thanks! Ha ha, I've got my fair share of "Blob in Flight" shots!!
Love your BIF shots. I tried it once and only got a blurry blob
I agree, that's the hardest part, I need to get a decent gimbal instead of messing around and relying on my hand held skilz...Great Blue Heron~
Great shots, the eyes are nicely in focus. Sometimes its tough to get a cleanly focused eye of a bird in flight.
Jon, Thank you, you're very kind! That's a fantastic pelican image btw! I have had a couple White Pelican opps in the last two days but they are just a little too far out with my 100-400m on my FF. I think they wouldn't be much better on my 7d either... Someone gave me a lead on some nearby, so maybe tomorrow!Bald Eagle in Flight
You've got a knack for birds in flight. All of these, the eagles, the osprey, really great shots.
If you want sharp + versatile + prime quality, then get 24-70 f2.8 IIVer I or Ver II are excellent!
I was so happy to replace my old sigma 24-70 (2003 model, heavy as a 6 pack of beer) with the canon 24-105. The 24-105 was lighter to carry everywhere. But now the picture quality is not what I'm looking for. After years with it, I found its not as sharp as it can be. It works really well when I'm outside with good light. Not as well indoors without flash.Could be time for a quick MFA adjustment and perhaps it will be back to sharp as always! Sounds like it's been a great lens for you, that might just do the trick!
Now I'm saving for the 24-70 2.8 for replacement and will sell the 24-105.
